I got tagged by Yasmine and I was really down so I knew it was a sign for me to get out of my blues . Although I had a beautiful experience on Tuesday and wanted to blog abut it, wednesday was a complete disaster. Anyways, quoted from one of my favorite movies, Sound of Music, these are the few of my favorite things :
1- the idea that if you are stuck in your car suffering from the traffic,trying to reach downtown from Maadi, you can always park your car beside the underground station and take the Metro. You will reach the Opera in less than 20 minutes while you can reach the Opera in something like an hour using your car.
2-When in my blues,I get down to the street,take a taxi or take my husband's car as I dont have one yet and sub7an Allah I either hear a verse from qoraan , a song or even read a proverb written on the back of the truck. When all this was yesterday, I saw
كله بأمره .....which simple means just to have more patient and wait as God will sure end all this and Everything will be ok.
3- arriving at work,sitting on my desk,drinking my home made cup of tea, eating my homemade sandwhich and it be better be gebna roumy :) and watching my favorite show alqaheraalyoum presented by Amr Adib. I like his way of mocking everything as well as putting all the news in a nutshell.
I became more aware of many different things happening all around the world, thanks to this show.
4-surfing the internet ,finding a new recepie, writting it down in my notebook, making it then see the looks from whoever is tasting which re-assures that Iam the best chef all over the world.
My latest dishes were meat and chicken fajita,choclate moka mousse tart last but not least my lovely red velvet cake.
5-checking my brothers blog and reading his latest posts. You cant imagine how happy Iam when I do relate to everything he is writting sometimes you cant just express your thoughts to words but someone at least my brother can do this .
Check his blog : 3ann.blogspot.com
6-watching Brothers & Sisters the tv show.I cant remember how I came through it ,all I remember is that I watched season4 which is the latest before watching the earlier episodes. I love Nora Walker, who is Sally Field, although her husband cheated on her , she never lost the urge to gather her family and keep this bond strong.
7-Youtube . Its my online TV,whenever I miss anything aired on TV I know I can search ,find and watch it anytime I want.
8-discovering new countries and cities, always wishing that I can get the chance to travel all over the world. Zanzibar in Tanzania,Bali in Indonesia and Sri Lanka are my latest explorations.
9- Martha Stewart, the blog , the site, everything. When I just log to marthastewart.com, I know I can find a new article,craft,picture or even an idea that never came through my mind and this makes me feel that I still can be happy and go on my life even if everything else doesnt seem that nice.
10-music and songs. A nice melody can make me fly up in the air when Iam on the ground.I especially like hearing soundtracks of the films, I admire most.One of my favorites is the music by Hans Zimmer made for the "Holiday " not to mention "My Best Friend's Wedding", last but not least I do enjoy Hussien ElJasmy songs in particular those with the gulf slang.
I do thank you Jessy for your tag and I do tag those :
